Downing Street Christmas Parties Investigation (9 Dec 2021)

Michael Ellis: ...its support. One of the things he could do, for example, is ask for its advice as to the legal position on various matters. There are myriad ways that the Government Legal Department can help and give advice. It will be up to Simon Case as Cabinet Secretary, who heads the home civil service, to deal with the matter.

Church Commissioners: Family Relationships, Parenting and Marriage (9 Dec 2021)

Andrew Selous: I am sure we would all like to congratulate my hon. Friend on her wedding. I am delighted to learn about the support that Rev. Michael Brown gave to her for her wedding and about all the good work that he does in his parish. It gives me, and probably all of us, enormous pleasure to pay tribute to Rev. Brown and indeed to all our parish priests who work tirelessly to show the love of Christ to...

Health and Care Bill - Second Reading (7 Dec 2021)

Lord Warner: ...reported. I note that even now the Treasury cannot resist using a meaner means test than we proposed. That approach does not do much for the Government’s levelling-up agenda and I wonder whether Michael Gove’s department was consulted before the decision was made. We must reverse this mean-spirited approach. The Dilnot commission’s proposed individual cap was served up to deal with a...

Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill [HL] - Report (Continued): Amendment 2 (6 Dec 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: Article 13 have frequently been cited as one of the key flaws in EU sentience policy that post-Brexit UK sentience policy can improve on. In fact, the then Secretary of State at Defra Michael Gove said in 2017: “The current EU instrument—Article 13—has not delivered the progress we want to see. It does not have direct effect in law—in practice its effect is very unclear and it...

Education (Environment and Sustainable Citizenship) Bill [HL] - Committee: Amendment 1 (3 Dec 2021)

Lord Adonis: ...the cause of the environment as part of that. Because this is of some importance to how our education law develops, I want to get a bit technical for a moment or two if my noble friend will forgive me. I want all this on the record because we may need to come back to it in due course. My noble friend’s Bill essentially amends Sections 80, 84 and 85 of the Education Act 2002. Perhaps I...

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19: Preparing for Winter and Priorities for Recovery (2 Dec 2021)

Michael Marra: ...Early in the debate, I was struck by Gillian Martin’s continued use of the phrase, “As we look towards recovery”. For many of us, this week, in particular, that feels like a distant horizon, given the advent of the omicron variant and the challenges that we can anticipate, although we still hope that they can be avoided. If, God willing, the results of the current research into the...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Clause 27 - Application of section 124 of TIOPA 2010 in relation to diverted profits tax (1 Dec 2021)

David Linden: ...; the Minister is incredibly kind and generous. May I take her back to a point that she made to the hon. Member for Ealing North (James Murray) about the loan charge? My Gartloch constituent, Michael Milne, has been in touch with me regularly about the issue. Will she commit at the Dispatch Box to personally taking a look at his case? He has expressed enormous concern to me about the...

Scottish Parliament: Ventilation in Schools (1 Dec 2021)

Michael Marra: .... This year, a wee alarm goes off in the corner of the classroom telling teachers to open the window. What happens if the window is already open when the alarm goes off, Lord only knows. I will give way to the cabinet secretary right now if she can tell us by what criteria classroom air quality was judged and the pass and failure rates of the 41,000 inspected classrooms.

Conduct of the Right Hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (30 Nov 2021)

Michael Ellis: I will give way more than the right hon. Member for Ross, Skye and Lochaber, but not yet. For my part, I relish the opportunity to set a different scene for the House of what the Prime Minister is achieving for the people who returned him to No. 10, many of whom voted Conservative for the first time. At the election, he made a clear commitment to spreading opportunity more fairly and to...

Dissolution and Calling of Parliament Bill - Second Reading (30 Nov 2021)

Lord Newby: ...purpose of the Fixed-term Parliaments Act was to provide a stable framework within which the coalition Government formed in 2010 could operate. In his Second Reading speech in another place, even Michael Gove accepted that it had been successful in achieving this and had prevented the Tories “collapsing the Government” early to gain a political advantage. The reason we have this Bill...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Members' Statements: Pearson National Teaching Awards (29 Nov 2021)

Gary Middleton: ...US president, Bill Clinton, paid a glowing tribute to Marie and the work that she has done in her career. Among those congratulating Marie on 'The One Show' was the principal of Lisneal College, Michael Allen. He came on the programme to give his congratulations, but, of course, he too was congratulated and left with an award: head teacher of the year in a secondary school. While, no...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Digital Technology: Education (29 Nov 2021)

Alex Burghart: The department recognises the importance of digital skills at all levels and has introduced a range of provision to give people the opportunity to acquire the digital skills they need. In 2020 we introduced a new digital entitlement that will enable adults with no or low digital skills to undertake new improved digital qualifications free of charge. These entitlements are based on new...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Private Renting and Homelessness This Winter: Private Renting and Homelessness This Winter (29 Nov 2021)

Sadiq Khan: ...all across London rather than just in some boroughs. However, we need support from the Government. Councils are really struggling with the cuts they have had over the last 11 years. The CSR did not give them the monies that they had hoped for. Tom [Copley] and my team are speaking to the Government. I welcome [the Rt Hon] Michael Gove [MP] being the new Secretary of State [for Levelling...

Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Homes: Climate Standards (29 Nov 2021)

Michael Fabricant: ...? I know it is difficult in smaller buildings to have ground pumps because of the large infrastructure required, but air pumps are a little more possible, so what encouragement can the Government give to retrofit such pumps to existing homes?

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (11th Day): Amendment 298 (24 Nov 2021)

Lord Coaker: the small price that you pay for democratic rights to protest. Again, it comes back to a question of balance, so I ask the Minister about safeguards. The Explanatory Notes state: “Clause 60 gives effect to recommendations made by the Law Commission … that the common law offence of public nuisance should be replaced by a statutory offence”. However, as raised by the Bar Council and...

Black Friday: Financial Products — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (23 Nov 2021)

Stella Creasy: ...—where would we be without Money Saving Expert?—Citizens Advice, Which?, and Step Change, all of whom have tried to sound the alarm about buy now, pay later, in particular. Today, I want to give the Minister probably the best Christmas present of all, which is oddly enough not a subscription to Michael Bublé on Spotify, but the opportunity to prove me wrong. I want to be wrong about...

Health and Care Bill: New Clause 2 - Health warnings on cigarettes and cigarette papers (22 Nov 2021)

Mary Foy: I could not agree more. Michael Marmot is one of the most important health inequalities experts around. To make matters worse, smoking rates among young adults have surged to 25% above pre-lockdown rates. However, despite the damage that missing the 2030 target would cause, there is nothing in the Bill that would help to achieve the Government’s ambition to make smoking obsolete. That is...

Initial Teacher Training - Motion to Take Note (18 Nov 2021)

Baroness Blower: Ian Bauckham of the Tenax Schools Trust—as my noble friend said—went about the review of the ITTP provider market. The Library briefing on initial teacher training providers and the review gives a large number of figures for recruitment to a variety of routes into teaching and faithfully reports what the review was ostensibly set up to do—to ensure that: “All trainees receive...

Backbench Business: Automated External Defibrillators: Public Access — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (18 Nov 2021)

Aaron Bell: ...fabulous teaching assistant. She was fun and loved life. She was always bright and colourful. She used to work in the school office and was the first face that many parents saw here. She would have Michael Buble on a loop in the office.” The circumstances of Sam’s death are not only tragic, but illustrate the problems with access to defibrillators. When she collapsed one morning in...

Northern Ireland Protocol: EU Negotiations (18 Nov 2021)

Michael Ellis: ...that, to make progress, it was important to bring “new energy and impetus” to discussions. Accordingly, intensified talks are taking place this week between teams in Brussels on all issues, giving particular attention to medicines and customs issues. This week, Lord Frost has also been in Belfast, talking to political, business and civil society leaders and will meet with...
